My Purple Pleated Dress

Postby Emmaline » Wed Mar 09, 2011 8:36 am

I finished my purple pleated dress just in time for Wild Wild West Con! Vanessa and I were the best dressed at the Chrononaut Ball. I modified the bodice (no cuffs or collar) and shortened the apron overskirt a bit. The day after the Con was over, Jerry (bf) and I went to Tombstone and I wore this again. So glad I sewed dust ruffles underneath, my train trailed in the dirt all day. I will post a few from Tombstone as soon as downloaded. Took a great picture with Wyatt Earp, one very handsome man! I believe his wife sews beautiful Victorian gowns.

So beautiful, both of you! How I love that color.

Nu uh, Miss Cindy - I've got dibs on that dress.

Let me tell you guys, it is STUNNING in person.
The untold want, by life and land ne'er granted,
Now, Voyager, sail thou forth, to seek and find.
